      Historical Traveler Reviews Cambridge Suites - Halifax

      Fantastic stay at the Cambridge Suites


      I just wanted to ensure that anybody travelling to Halifax for business or pleasure should definately stay at the Cambridge Suites. The rooms are newly renovated and extremely comfortable and large. The continental breakfast had a great variety and the quality was excellent. The staff certainly lived up to the Maratime hospitality that atlantic provinces are renouned for. It was a pleasure staying there and I will not hesitate to stay there again on my next visit. In fact, I look forward to it. Thanks to all the kind staff who made my stay so fantastic.

      Great stay


      I found this to be a very pleasant place to stay.

      My work has me travelling across the Maritime Region and I found the Cambridge a very comfortable and friendly place to stay.

      The staff were helpful and pleasant.

      Breakfast was good: juice, fruit, muffins, breads for toasting.

      The room was more than expected. Clean and well maintained.

      Great place!


      I am a real fan of the Cambridge Suites chain. I have stayed many times at the Toronto location and decided to also try the one in Halifax and again was not disapointed.

      While the Toronto hotel is the ultimate in all suites luxury, the Halifax location is accordingly toned down and perfect for the city. Close to all major attractions, clean, spacious rooms and friendly service all make it a must stay!

      The continental breakfast can sometime get hairy, but at least its offered! Id recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Halifax.

      Great Location


      We chose this hotel because it is the only hotel in downtown Halifax that offers a one bedroom "suite."I was travelling with my 13 year old son so some privacy was important!The rooms are cetainly dated and the carpets are worn.It is overpriced for the quality of the hotel.On Wed. evenings in the summer the Manager offers guests a free cocktail and bbq on the lovely deck overlooking the harbour.The location is great-easy access to the main shopping district of Spring Garden Rd. and a ten minute walk to the waterfront.(very hilly)

      Very impressed


      Haev just got back home after staying at the Cambridge Suite for 5 nights. We had a suite with harbour view. The room was very spacious, clean and well thought out. Check in staff at reception were very pleasant and efficient. There was no problem when we asked if we could check out later than planned (3 pm) as our flight was delayed. It really was one of the most pleasant hotels we have stayed in and wouldn't hesitate to go back again.

      Also impressed by the fact that since returning home, we have had a email from them asking if our stay was satisfactory, and after filling in the on-line questionnaire we have had a email back from them thanking us.

      Not recommended


      We stayed here February 2000 for one night to attend a concert at the Halifax Metro Centre.

      The location of this hotel is good if you will be walking to Spring Garden Road (many restaurants and little boutiques, etc) or to the World Trade and Convention Centre or the Halifax Metro Center. There are many local bars and dinner theatres nearby.

      The Casino is quite a long walk, might want to check to see if the hotel offers a shuttle service first, or to drive there.

      Parking is under the hotel, and there is an extra charge.

      The room was clean, complimentary breakfast could only be called pathetic, nothing left, unorganized, minimal seating.

      We were charged an outrageous price for each LOCAL call and were not told about this fee on check-in so there was quite a bill in the morning!

      This building is older, we haven't been there in years, it may have undergone some renovations since our stay. It was winter time, the heater in our room didn't work very well, and there was a draft in the window.

      Upon leaving the hotel, I wrote them a letter to mail away a comment card to complain, I received a letter back from the hotel which sounded insincere and uncaring.

      I have since moved to Halifax and I would not recommend this hotel to anyone I know. Too expensive for what it is worth.

      Don't bother reserving!


      While the hotel is adequate, don't bother with a reservation as it will likely be dishonoured. Our reservation for a suite made three months in advance of a busy 2003 Labour Day weekend and confirmed in writing by the hotel was disregarded upon arrival based on some story about the people in our room wishing to stay on and not wanting to "throw them out". Arrival was mid-afternoon after a two day drive from Ontario with a family of four, including two teenagers. A suite on a smoking floor was offered, but the tobacco smell was extremely offensive and unacceptable (particularly with an asthmatic child). With all other hotels fully booked, we were crowded into a small standard room with two beds. The check in staff made minimal attempts to accommodate, offered only a minor discount and there was no follow up.

      Home for 12 days


      I found this to be a very pleasant place to call home for 12 days.

      I travel plenty as a computer consultant so I feel I know of what I speak.

      The staff were helpful and pleasant. Breakfast was good for continental: juice, fruit, muffins, breads for toasting. Full breakfast was available at normal breakfast prices.

      Exercise room was clean, with a full universal gym and movement machines of a fair variety.

      Worst Hotel Experience Ever


      requested rm on top fl. was given 2nd fl no view with hammering 2 drs down to wake up to a 8am - apparently they keep the higher flrs for regulars- charming. Staff incompetent, amenities poorly stocked, room looked dated and dirty - and not like those photos posted on website, overcharged - was told $180 was due to hike increase because the demand put on hotel since Hurricane Juan - isn't that illegal?? 'deluxe continental breakfast' - ha! if you could get any - no place to sit, empty coffee pots, disorganized - garbage everywhere. A complete disappointment - really felt like we were ripped off - would never recommend this hotel - even friends who knew it were shocked at the price we paid.

      Cambridge Suites Good Value


      We stayed at Cambridge Suites in August 2001. It is not the most luxurious hotel but it is quite nice. It has an excellent location - between Barrington Street and Citadel Hill - just a stone's throw from Spring Garden Road. You can walk just about anywhere. The is a decent licensed restaurant on site. The service was good and the value for location is very good. Parking is an adventure and I wouldn't want to try and get a good size SUV into it!!

Tomorrow is already it s now 2:00 a.m. Which means it's time for bed. We have a 7:00 a.m. wake up call. This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone, but we don't rest much when we travel. There is too much to see and do and we don't want to miss a single moment of ...

It was super good and it went great with my chocolate pie. Chris got a whisky drink of course and the best ginger carrot cake ever! Sarah and Ben treated us to the night as our honeymoon gift which was really sweet of them!

      ... through traffic. Public transit did us just fine

    • Be on top of things at the airport and go EARLY. We did this, but thanked our lucky starts we did because the announcements are difficult to hear, they're not as clear and they don't pull you out of the security line if your plane is boarding. You're SOL if you miss it because you got stuck in a long line

      ... I headed down to the farmers market. I think because it is between Christmas & new year there wasn't many stalls or people there. There was some nice local products there. I then headed for Pier 21 to find it is closed for renovating in winter. The gift shop was open so I had a look around there. Then I did the harbour walk. It was a bit cold. I only feel it on my face as that is all that is exposed. ...

      Lobsters, Bagpipes and Sail Boats: Halifax, N.S.

      Last week, I set off for my first trip outside of Newfoundland and headed off to Halifax. From the outset it looked and felt like I had left Little Ireland for Little Scotland. The name of the province ‘Nova Scotia’- or ‘Novelle Ecosse’- is perhaps a good indicator of the extent of Scottish influence. While there were some undeniably Scottish features to Halifax- the bagpipes and kilts spring to mind- there was so much more ...
